Micron RealSSD C300 (128GB, 256GB)
Street price: TBA
Says Dean Kline, VP of memory system development at Micron Technology, “Intel’s SSD used to be the industry bar, now ours is.” Kline unapologetically refers to Micron’s upcoming RealSSD C300 drive, available in the first quarter of 2010, and theoretically twice as fast (!) as any drive currently on the market.
OCZ Colossus (1TB)
Street price: $3000
Sporting a truly gargantuan capacity of one full terabyte (suitable for storing hundreds, if not thousands, of songs, videos and photos), the high-end model of OCZ’s aptly-named Colossus line of SSD drives impressively points the way not just to the future of the technology, but also, for some, to the poorhouse. For (upscale) PCs only.
